For lovers of speed, the new AMG GT S is the second sports car developed entirely in-house by Mercedes-AMG.

Its interior design embodies maximum emotion and sensual purity. Radically low, sporty proportions create a unique sense of spaciousness. Clearly drawn components and their authentic materials underscore the dynamic character and create instant excitement: anyone opening the door discovers an exciting interplay between the deep, sloping dashboard and a dominant, arched high centre console, a design which evokes emotions and impresses with its perfection.
Also sharing the spotlight at GulfRun, the all-new Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 4MATIC Coupé is an exciting interpretation of a four-door SUV coupé that combines the sportiness of a coupé with the strengths of an SUV.
Exceptional agility, distinctive engine sound and typical sports car acceleration are united with poise, assurance, tremendous pulling power and perfect traction. Its avant-garde exterior design and exclusive interior adds to its stand-out appeal – a unique creation for those looking for an all-round vehicle with high-performance technology and an emotional design.
The all-new GLE 63 4MATIC Coupé comes with a powerful, hand-built AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine and a wealth of AMG-tuned enhancements that add unrivalled performance to its sleek coupé styling and commanding SUV strength.
